I have had at least 5 colposcopy biopsies and they seemed no more uncomfortable than a pap until this last one. They had to take several samples and the largest from the canal. More cramping than previous but tolerable.

The first colposcopy went fine. I felt mild cramping during the procedure that felt exactly like period cramps. Not painful. I was surprised and nervous when I started shedding the clotting medicine - I had no idea what it was. The second colposcopy was a little worse. It took longer than expected and doc had to take more biopsies than originally planned. Had moderate pain that day.
